On Ontario original! Mabel's VCR is a fascinating blend of 50% Viognier, 35% Chardonnay and 15% Riesling. Each wine was vinified separately, with the final assemblage taking place before bottling.
Suggestions of baked apple, preserved lemon, and just a hint of oak on the nose. Citrus and baked apple notes continue on the palate, which is dry, firm and distinctly lean on the finish. A flinty or slate-like element runs throughout the wine.
